I've the pretty common brown hair/brown eyes combo, but when I was about 3 months old, doctors realised that I have Dextrocardia (my heart is on the right hand side of my chest). When I was 25, I had to have some scans and another doctor recognised Dextrocardia Situs Invertus - all my organs are reversed - that was a shock!!

It is supposed to cause a lot of health complications, but on that front I've gotten off lightly (aside from the Goldenhar Syndrome, Hydrocephalus and Duanes Syndrome) - out of my (genetically blessed, beautiful people) siblings, I am way less prone to illness than any of them (and I'm the only one who doesn't have to wear glasses!!)
